house spokes person dana perino said, it's a sign that detroit continues to adopt and evolve and address the change in consumer tastes and attitudes. and i think that they're adapting well. that was seven months before president obama took the oath of office. the wheels were in motion. the wheels of bankruptcy were already in motion for the entire automobile industry, and there were no takers. general motors had cut 71,000 jobs since 2008. general motors had lost more than $54 billion since 2005. now, on november 18th, just several months after that quote from dana perino, mitt romney wrote infamously in the detroit free press, let detroit go bankrupt. in other words, let them die. the engine, one of the biggest engines of the united states economy was told, you're on your own. get out of here. the republicans still can't decide what they want to this day. ryan actually wanted the president to micromanage a plant that closed before he took office. at the same time, romney and other republicans wanted to liquidate the entire industry. >> it could have gone back more effectively and sooner

in detroit most of the early part of my adult life. remember, this is the mitt romney who said the automatic industry just go bankrupt. when you look outside of detroit, of course, michigan but ohio depends on those jobs. as a matter of fact, throughout the midwest, most of the jobs, whether it's the automotive industry or not directly, there are indirect jobs related. glass, plastic, rubber, you name it. textiles, so that does not surprise me. because i think what white, working class, particularly men, understand, i would rather have a black friend in the white house than a whiten me and i've raised that question with unions i've spoke to. you've got to ask yourself that question. you my understand. labor has a friend. working people have a friend in the white house. they do not have a friend with mitt romney. >> well, patricia, staying on that for a minute, also in the area of health care, something that i think people are getting beyond a racial divide because we all are concerned about our health and insurance. now, in the "60 minutes" interview with romney last night, he was asked abou
said not to. they said let detroit go bankrupt. mitt romney went to detroit. manufacturing is the backbone in commities acro ohio th gavn manufacturing jobs. more than 50,000 manufacturing jobs have been created across ohio during that administration. more than 500,000 across the country. i think that ohio in many ways is a microcosm of the challenges that the nion facrd t str y how we' beguto overcome them. >> meanwhile as you make those strong distinction points, mitt romney is making case elsewhere in ohio that it can't afford four more years of the president. this isn't on the plane. hopefully you'll b abl tr better. >> do we want four more years where every single year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want four more years of trillion-dollar defici? >> no. >> so, ben,itt romney has ra $il tredent obama's $2.8 million. the super pacs as inow you're aware has fire power to release. when that happens in conjunction with the debates, do u frn ev ter rhere? >> well, mitt romney has to pre sent a plan. that's what these advertisements won't be able to do. the burd
romney said detroit should go bankrupt, you're going to hear about ending the war in iraq, he's going to say that thing about every american getting their fair shot and every american doing their fair share and every american playing by the rules. if you're a fan, a fan enough to go to a speech like this, you likely know what you're going to hear in broad strokes. today, today on the campaign trail, there was this moment in ohio where the crowd totally thought that president obama was going somewhere that he was not actually going. they started to audibly react as if he was talking about something that they pretty clearly really wanted him to talk about. but he was not going where they thought he was. listen. >> now, there was one person at governor romney's convention last week who wasn't entirely on script. no, no -- >> no, no. the crowd is sort of half booing and half starting to applaud. in a little excitement that president obama is about to talk about the offscript guy from last week, right? he's going to talk about this clint eastwood thing, but that's not what the president is
. it seems from outside ohio, the auto industry is everything there. not just detroit, ohio. what percentage of your workers, men and women, owe their jobs directly or indirectly to the success of the american auto industry? >> the center for automotive research in detroit said 850,000 jobs in a state of 11 million people, ohio, 850,000 jobs are connected directly or indirectly with autos. it's not just the plant that makes the chevy cruise in youngstown or the plant that assembles the jeep wrangler in liberty, in toledo, it's the supply chain, the auto dealers, the machinists and people that fix cars, the people that drive the trucks that move the car parts and the cars around. it's a zillion car parts manufacturers. the chevy cruise, for example, much is made in ohio from the glass -- or from the transmission to the wheels to the steel. one thing after another. it's clear that when we fought for the auto rescue, that that was all about jobs in ohio. that's really governor romney and my opponent's problem is they oppose the auto rescue. they don't quite know how to back off that. >> well, w
president would abandon one of our great cities like detroit? when you abandon detroit, you abandon cities like toledo and ohio. so i think the people of ohio are confused about obama. they don't really believe in the yes, we can. some of them are feeling that they're still struggling, but there's a general feeling that obama backed the auto industry, therefore, cared about their cities and the republicans don't, and that may be how he wins ohio on that auto issue. >> jennifer granholm got it right, chris. >> what? what did she say? >> i said governor granholm got it right in her speech when she talked about the fact that what barack obama did for the auto industry wasn't just michigan, it was ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, north carolina, so many other states benefited where our manufacturers manufacture component parts. >> okay. great. that's so important. thank you, governor ed rendell, thank you doug brinkley. good luck with the book. "cronkite." >>> coming up, you listen very carefully and the sound you hear is the republican gnashing of teeth. they think mitt romney is losing what the
? let detroit go bankrupt. we weren't going to let detroit go bankrupt or lordstown go bankrupt or toledo go bankrupt. i stood with american workers. i stood with american manufacturing. i believed in you. i bet on you. i'll make that bet any day of the week. and because of that bet three years later that bet is paying off for america. >> the president bet on america time and time again. and because of that, we're better off. case closed. joining me now is chairwoman of the democratic national committee, congresswoman debbie wasserman shultz. thanks for joining me tonight. >> thank you. great to be with you again. >> what does the president need to do this week? >> what we're doing this week unlike the invitation only corporate infused back room deal smoke filled room affair that we had in my home state last week put on by the republicans, here this week in charlotte we opened the week with a community festival. celebrating the carolinas and invited the public to participate in what would be the most inclusive community oriented nominating convention for a presidential candidate
romney, let detroit go bankrupt. the president, not on my watch. those are clear differences. mitt romney on his position on tax cuts for the most fortunate. the president, we got to make sure kids can afford to go to college. clear differences on policy. and i do believe and what i tried to say last night and this is true for the campaign going forward, there is going to be an unforeseen crisis, challenge or conflict that we can't see, it's going to come to the white house, it's going to land on that white house desk like a thud. whose values and whose judgment do you want and leadership in that oval office at that desk at that moment in time? a person who said to detroit and was wrong, not just said, if we followed his path, we would have lost a million manufacturing jobs in this country. if we had followed his path on housing, where he said just let it hit bottom, we would be wrong. lot of people are refinancing today because of the decisions the president made so they can hold on to their home. i think at every place, you have a clear distinction, clear choice, different paths with di
prediction is that after all the votes are counted, even the dead votes of democrats in chicago, detroit and cleveland, i predict that we will win. >> now, joining me now is an original member of the freedom riders, democratic congressman john lewis of georgia. thank you so much for being with us today, representative. and you gave an impassioned speech at the dnc in charlotte. many people remember that, on this very issue, and i want to share with viewers what you said, just a little bit. take a listen. >> i've seen this before. i lived this before. too many people struggling, s l suffering and dying to make it possible for every american to exercise their right to vote, and we have come too far together to ever turn back! >> congressman, you were referring to your work with the student nonviolent coordinating committee in 1965, when you lived through that brutality of the march on selma. that march almost killed you, and republicans deny there is necessary connection here between these moments and that time in history. what's your reaction? >> well, my reaction, it's very simple -- yo
. >>> police in michigan think they might have a lea ore jifas buried. a dying detroit man tells police he believes he saw hoffa's body being buried 35 years ago. investigators will take soil samples from beneath a detroit driveway to determine if a body is buried there. mmyfaast in 1975. despite a number of searches over the years, his body has not been found even when they built the new giants stadium which was the great rumor for so long. >>> today's deep dive. more evidence that money will not decide this race. four months the was nd wringing about high money donors and contributors that wrote big checks in 2008 would sit in the sidelines in 2012 and a big money deficit would make a difference in a tight presidential race. back in early february, the president reverse a long held position on ss signaling they should pony up and to democrats it was safe to ask for outside money themselves. he teased the decision in an interview with nbc's mattlauer. >> if you ask me would i love to take some of the big money out of politics? i ul rtelgh now partly because of supreme court rulings and a
. let detroit go bankrupt. this was a guy who was using his greatest name-recognition strength to try and take president obama down. that was in april of 2008. >> john, we're going to try to take the onion skin off of some of this. some of them revised history leaving out the inconvenient fact that the republican party spent the past 3 1/2 years refusing any opportunity to compromise with president obama. anyway, for example, ryan put the blame for the country's credit downgrade squarely on the shoulders of president obama. let's listen. >> it began with a perfect aaa credit rating for the united states. it ends with a downgraded america. >> the reason the country's debt rating was downgraded is everyone who watches this program and others on msnbc and read the newspapers know, it had a lot to do with the republican congress playing a dangerous game of chicken over the debt, refusing to compromise. here is what he said about the simpson-bowles debt commission. this is again paul ryan skating around the truth. >> he created a new bipartisan debt commission. they came back with an urgen
bailout, detroit building more cars. >> today they can't build them fast enough because we reinvented a dying auto industry that's back on the top of the world. >> reporter: the bulk of this speech aimed at the middle class. >> i refuse to ask middle class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or raising their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut. >> reporter: the president called for a million new manufacturing jobs, cutting the growth of college tuition in half and reducing the deficit by $4 trillion. >> i ask you tonight for your vote. >> reporter: if he gets another chance. today, it's back on the campaign trail to new hampshire. new hampshire's one of the eight battleground states where mitt romney's rolling out 15 new ads today. the conventions are now over, and as he says in that ad, the race is on. lynn? >> all right, tracie, thanks. last night on msnbc's special convention coverage, republican strategist steve schmidt told rachel maddow and the coverage team he thought president obama did very well in his speech but we'll have to wait and see ab

, that the auto industry is everything there. you're talking now t just detroit but what percentage owe their success to the american auto industry? >> $850,000 850,000 jobs are connected directly or indirectly with autos. it's not just the plant that makes the chef chevies in youngs town but it's the machinists that fix cars and the people who drive the trucks that move the car parts or trucks around. it's a zillion car parts manufacturers and the chevy, much of is it made in ohio, from the transmission to the windows to the steel. it's clear when we fought for the auto rescue, that was all about jobs in ohio and that's really governor romney and my opponent's problem. they don't though how to back off that. >> the guy up against you, mandela, he was against the auto rescue, right? >> well, he called me unamerican for supporting it so i guess you would come to that conclusion, yeah. >> i think you're going to like this ad, senator. trying to portray romney successfully as a businessman that cares more about the bottom line than the average men or women out there working. let's look at
but when it came time for american auto manufacturers and workers, he said, you're on your own. let detroit go bankrupt. also, ryan and romney proposed the plan to privatize social security. if we listen to them pb people would have been totally flat on their backs with no retirement security when we went through the last economic downturn. >> caught flat-footed this weekend and you had the statement, one played over and over, and republicans used that to push back. why is there not a more definitive statement on this pr everyone representing the administration on sunday? >> what governor o'malley said is that we haven't recovered from the total collapse that we saw at the end of the last part of the bush administration. the president stopped the free-fall. and we are climbing out of it. the first thing was to make sure that we don't -- didn't go spiralling into the great depression. another one. you today stop the free-fall and turn the corner. what o'malley and others were saying and he clarified his remarks, was that we still have ground to make up. why would we go back to the same folks
-americans are not feeling mitt romney is because jobs are extremely important to us. right now in detroit, another town i've lived in 20 years, people are back to work because of barack obama saved the auto industry. not the level they'd like to, but in the right direction. >> two of tonight's featured speakers are former bain capital employees randy johnson and s cindy ewing. they've both appeared on this show to talk about the record. watch this. >> to me it's simple. it's profits before people. i don't think he's in touch for the reality of what it means to be on the shop floor. he's never been a manager on a shop floor. he's never done anything but produced profits for the rich. >> i really, really find his claims he created jobs to be offensive. because the jobs he created were entry-level service and retail positions. they were not jobs that gave people a living wage where they could support their families, send their kids to school. the jobs he eliminated in our plant absolutely were. >> these are two of the speakers tonight. do you expect a harsh attack on bain tonight? >> i certainly think they
numbers. >> my prediction, even though the dead votes of chicago, detroit, and cleveland i predict that we will win. >> now, also with an interview with tpm, there was this comment. he doubled down bauer. the quote is, voter fraud is rampant in urban areas. i'm raising this to you, because you did the study. from your study and studies that you have also looked over and reviewed -- >> yep. >> have you found rampant voter fraud and is there any scientific data to support that the people voting for the president are people that are dependent on a check in the mail from the government and any of these other class and race-based accusations? >> absolutely not, reverend. those kinds of statements are not in keeping with american values. you know, in america, voting is a fundamental right. it is not a privilege. when you're at the ballot box, whether you are rich or poor or whether you are young or old or whether you are a democrat or a republican, you are ee fall at the ballot box and it is so important when we hear that kind of rhetoric, everyone out there goes and registers to vote. there are
